"The eXtreme Universe" X-ray Sky Planetarium Show

As part of XMM-Newton mission outreach, we are creating a digital planetarium show that will illustrate the difference between the optical light in the sky we see with our eyes and the X-ray sky. Students will take a GeoDome planetarium tour of the Universe, using the powerful Uniview realtime visualization platform.

The planetarium show is being developed by NASA Goddard Visitor Center and the NASA E/PO group at Sonoma State University. It is scheduled for release later this year.
